2009 Chrysorroyiatissa Monastiri (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Shiraz)
Note by Mateo - @whineontherocks - Satisfying aroma marked by blackberries, plum, black pepper, cloves and a light hint of vanilla and chocolate. To the palate, harsh tannins and a noticeable spike in the alcohol that smoothed out once the wine was matched with food and had enough time to breathe. Black fruit predominates in a blend that lacked some flavor in the mid-palate, a miss in the finish.
Nice, full bodied sweet wine. Perfect for after dinner with desert or alone. Pleasing, rich aroma, similar to a nice sherry or port. Velvety smooth with notes of dried fruit clove and allspice. Probably would make a good mulled wine or wine/cider mix if you were so inclined
